Juvenile Justice Workgroup

by Cheryl Cadue last modified Dec 09, 2015 09:43 AM
The inter-branch Juvenile Justice Workgroup marks the first critical step of a wide-ranging review of Kansas' juvenile justice system.

The State of Kansas is receiving technical assistance from the Pew Charitable Trusts, Public Safety Performance Project, to comprehensively examine Kansas’ juvenile justice system and to develop data-driven policies based upon research and built upon consensus among key stakeholders from across our state. New research and new approaches have emerged to offer states a wide range of effective and cost-effective options for protecting public safety, holding juvenile offenders accountable, and improving recidivism and other outcomes for children and families while containing costs.

To examine the Kansas system, leaders of the executive, judicial, and legislative branches of government have established a bipartisan, inter-branch Juvenile Justice Workgroup which will publish its findings and recommendations in November 2015.
